Bringing the Best in Hospice Care to Wisconsin
Hospice at Home in Wisconsin
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay home whenever possible—whether home is a private residence, an assisted living or long term care facility, or even a hospital room. We coordinate with patients’ personal physicians, so patients keep the doctors they know and trust. No matter where care takes place, we coordinate closely with all caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure the patients’ optimal well-being.
If a patients symptoms cannot be managed at home, VITAS has two fully staffed inpatient hospice units, one at The Lutheran Home in Wauwatosa, the other at Ruth Hospice House in West Allis.
Alternative Comfort Care
The goal at VITAS is individual care determined by the goals of the patient. Specialty care may be brought to the bedside by a music therapist or a Paw Pal® visit, as needed. With our commitment to caring for veterans at the end of life, recognized by the We Honor Veterans program, soldiers in Southeastern Wisconsin get the support and thanks they deserve.
